Our fall vegetables have been chosen for their ability to withstand light frosts once they are established.  A light frost actually improves the flavor of fall vegetables. However, too many hard freezes can cause plants to fail and protection against this is a great idea.

If it is still hot when you plant, providing a bit of afternoon shade will help get them established more quickly. Water checks at the root ball are a must for newly planted seedlings. Until the plant moves roots into the ground around it, the only water it can use is in its root zone.

Fall veggies have a short time to grow so weekly fertilizing with an all purpose organic fertilizer is advised.

MASSAGED KALE SALAD RECIPE

The amount of greens are up to you. The final product will reduce to about half of what you start with. Figure out how many cups of salad you want to end up with and double the number of cups of greens you start with. Kale, Mustard and baby Swiss Chard can all be fixed this way.

Remove the ribs of the greens. These make tasty additions to soup and can be frozen for later use.

Wash the greens and roll tightly in a clean kitchen towel. Refrigerate for at least 15 minutes.

Remove from the towel and dry off any excess moisture. Roll the leaves together lengthwise and slice across the width into thin ribbons.

Place the greens in a bowl large enough to toss them around.

Add a tablespoon of Olive Oil and a sprinkle of salt. At this point, we like to add some feta choose also but this optional.

Now massage the leaves with the oil until they have reduced by half.

Your salad is ready! Obviously there are as many variations as there are cooks. But this basic recipe is delicious on its own. We also use it to make a delicious massaged kale lasagna. Be sure to prepare a lot of Kale for the dish.
